    Games have a number of common characteristics that can be used to create effective learning environments. These include:

    Complex environments where players are expected to make decisions and problem-solve in increasingly difficult circumstances.

    Experimentation and risk taking in encouraging players to try out alternative courses of action and experience a range of different outcomes.

    Narrative and thematic threads which encourage players to take on the identity of a range of characters, to build a story around these characters and interact socially with others participants.

    Gamification recognises these characteristics as opportunities to improve intrinsic and extrinsic motivation, engagement and to change behaviour. A cope component of games is that they are fun and provide educational entertainment for participants.
